On February 24th, the Deja Vu and Hustler Club chain held its fabulous Showgirl of the Year Contest for 2005. This annual, event is one of the chains largest events of the season. This year, the ranks of the showgirl contestants totaled: eight, wild-eyed beauties, all in search of the coveted crown of Showgirl of the Year. The posh Little Darlings of Las Vegas, Nevada would be the gracious host, and proving ground for some of the country’s finest and most talented club performers. These entertainers came from Déjà Vu and Hustler locations across North America and Europe, competing at local and regional levels, before they ever made it this far.
Early in the evening of February 24th, the club already was filling to capacity. The spectators outside in line all seemed to have their own opinion on the outcome of the night’s events. It was probably safe to say that being that Las Vegas is a wagering town, that many on side bets were being laid down on the curvaceous crew of contestants. And those top eight contestants were none other than:
Backstage, the lovely contestants scrambled to prepare for their shows. Swimming pools were inflated, props were tested and anticipation filled the Little Darling’s dressing room. This night definitely belonged to the ladies, with many contestants rehearsing for this moment for several years. The mood between the performers seemed to be very supportive and helpful as the first entertainer prepared her stage onslaught.
Every type of show unraveled down the Little Darlings main stage, all evening. Show after fantastic show kept the crowd’s eyes glued, front and center. But hey, it was time to pick a winner. In the second runner-up position: Iris from Déjà Vu North Hollywood. In the first runner-up position: Chevelle from Déjà Vu Showgirls Las Vegas. And the winner of the 2005 Showgirl of the Year title was: Paris of Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club of Redlands, CA. Congratulations ladies!
As the long night of competition ended, and the photographers finished their barrage of Winners Circle photographs, we bid all of the contestants adieu until next year, we give a hardy congratulations to all eight of the fantastic participants including the stage crew for a job well done! Déjà Vu would like to thank Buddha, the staff and management of the Little Darlings of Las Vegas for their grand hospitality. See you next year!
